Weekly Feature: Anya Skidan plays Pinebox RockShop on 12.15

Anya Skidan is a young Brooklynite unafraid to throw herself decidedly at life's shadows, attempting to illuminate some psychedelic light over her settings. We enjoyed her performance at our flagship CMJ show at Pianos, and recommend you go see her live since you'll have three opportunity in December: she's playing Pinebox Rockshop on 12.15, Pete's Candy Store on 10.18 and Goodbye Blue Monday on 12.29. Read Mike Levine's interview here.

Weekly Feature: Cuddle Magic

Cuddle Magic may have a weird name, but it somehow makes sense. Their music inspires hugs (sophisticated ones though) and is achieved through instrumental wizardry involving a large list of unusual instruments. They played our CMJ show last October at The Living Room and charmed us inside out. That's why we interviewed them here

Electro-funk NYC band to watch: Autre Ne Veut plays 285 Kent tonight (12.07)

As covered in the latest print edition of The Deli, nu-electrofunk is on the rise in NYC, as evidenced by cool recent releases from Body Language, Friends and AVAN LAVA. Brooklyn based Autre Ne Veut throw their hat square in the ring with a free-download album titled Anxiety. Robotic counter-melodies and electronic castanets punctuate hazy rhythms that approach house music, but pull back just short of full disco-fication. Sexy falsetto vocals like the groove-oriented “Counting” (featuring Mykki Blanco, video streaming below) and the jumpy “Warning” feel carefree, if slightly calculated. Autre save the best for last with the electro freakout, “World War,” a ballad gone experimental to the extreme, recalling Purple Rain-era Prince in all its decadent hysteria. Label them “one to watch” - see them tonight (12.07) at 285 Kent in Williamsburg. - Brian Chidester

The single "Counting" was added to our SoundCloud playlist of emerging electronic NYC artists here.

The Henry Millers play Pianos on 12.07 (tonight)

New and young NYC electro-pop band, The Henry Millers, is playing a show in support of their debut “Daisies” at Pianos on Friday DEC 7th (tonight). Produced by former Pharell/Neptunes protégé Maxwell Drummey of Chester French, the album was released less than a month ago. The music video for their single “Diamonds” (streaming below) is a playful mix of Looney Tunes style cannibalism and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. The song itself is a reminder of pop bands such as Under the Influence of Giants and other earthy California style pop rock. Check them out, bring some flowers. - Julia Kwamya
